Most of the starship date has been provided by Rob Eaglestone, who is the most well knows starship guru for Traveller 5 (that’s how I see you Rob, I’m afraid *smile*).

 :COMMENTS

Built on a 500-ton TL-13 winged airframe, the Corvette is the Navy’s equivalent of the Scout/Courier, only bigger, faster, and better armed. It is fitted with the Ansar b3-G jump drive, the Yard 7 mL/5 maneuver drive, and the Grid 5p Tokamak/L3 power plant, giving performance of Jump-3 and 5G acceleration. Fuel tankage supports one jump and three months of operations. It has fuel scoops for gas giant skimming. Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/3 computer and an extensive sensor suite. There are five hardpoints filled with an array of powerful weapons.

Another render of the ship. As you might regognize, this is the CT 400dt Patrol Cuiser, that got an update for T5 (like the Gazelle Close Escort). The ship is rated at 500dt in T5.
